We knew before coming to Zakynthos we wanted to do the boat trips, staying in Tsilivi we were tipped that Levante was the best around and they were right!!
We booked in the office in Tsilivi and signed up for both the Shipwreck/Blue Caves trip and the Sea Turtle spotting/Turtle Island/Kerri Caves Trip.
We went to the Shipwreck Beach on the Saturday morning, we arrived before any other tour boats, as advertised, and had a wonder 30-40 mins on the beach, the view if the Shipwreck is breath taking and it's a lovely place to stop and have to just the small few of you before the 1500 others turn up! After this we went to the blue caves, Captain Spiros (legend) can manoeuvre is boat In and out of all the caves, most of the other trips cannot do this, another big plus point! We then stopped for a swim in the crystal clear blue water near the blue caves which they call blue lagoon, take a snorkel and look around, loads of fish! Then the final stop was lunch at the fishing village of St Nicholas, a lovely place to stop and a Fisherman's Salad which was out of this world!
The second trip we went Sea Turtle spotting, at the start if the trip Captain Spiros was very honest and said we may not see one as the weather had made the water slightly dirtier than usual, however we found one and it's an amazing sight, Spiros always tries to find a turtle and will very rarely stop til he does! Then we went to Turtle Island for a quick stop, I recommend having a snorkel around the rocks if you want to see some amazing fish, and some are quite big! Then he takes you inside the Kerri Caves, flying through some amazing arch ways in the cave structure before anchoring up in a beautiful cave where you can swim around and see some amazing things! Then you head back and stop off at the Banana beach for a bite to eat and a drink if you like before heading home.
I cannot stress enough how much value for money these trips are... and this mainly because of Captain Spiros and his crew. Spiros has been doing this for nearly 30 years and his Knowledge is second to none, he is also a very funny guy who will keep you entertained! Brilliant with kids who often get to ride up front and drive the boat (very jealous).
Thanks to everyone who world at Levante Speed Boat Tours, and we hope to see you again one day!
